aeon noctis
sword of time
lyrics

Dreaming or fighting

Or planning your life

Smiling or crying

You're just k**ing time

But time has no mercy

It's taking away

All that you have gained

All your glory and shame

Grim fire of Time

Just burns to the ash

Your name and your memory

Your soul and your flesh

No power, no gold

Can make you forget

About Sword of Time

That is over your head!

Time is often too fast

And often too slow

And nobody knows

When it strikes its blow

Unspoken desires...

Not tasted delights...

Broken illusions

And eternal night

Some drawn their sorrow

In wine and delights

Others believe

In their merciful fate

Some look for glory

Some look for a fight

Some look for wisdom

But always too late

What for all this fighting

All words, thoughts and lusts

If Time drowns them in darkness

And turns them to dust?

When your time is over

You just feel deceived

What will be your estate?

Just ashes you leave!

Kings, heroes and slaves

Once meet sunset of life

And fall down, overtaken

By the Sword of Time

But who is its master?

And what was his price

For key to eternity

And for Sword of Time?

Will there ever come

The one who can win

Eternal chains of doom

And destiny's whirls?

One who can fight

Sorrow inside

Fears of d**h

And frustrations of life!

Some drawn their sorrow

In wine and delights

Others believe

In their merciful fate

Some look for glory

Some look for a fight

Then (they) all disappear

In black oceans of night
